Life of Lu 7/6/2012

I love Edinburgh.
I think you should know.
I love it truly.
Every day I feel more settled.
Every week I feel new friendships grow deeper.
I really am content.
So content that I sing. Poorly.
I should apologise for that.

I really like my new job.
Sometimes I feel my head may explode with information.
Then it digests and I feel capable again.
It is nice to use my brain again.
It does help that I have wonderful colleagues.
They make it easy to love the job.
I will be working with them for at least 7 more weeks.
Then I finish my training.
After that... who knows?

Euro 2012 fever has taken over our wee flat.
It bores me terribly but the boy loves it,
so I pretend.
I pretend quite well.
I predict Russia to win. He reckons Portugal.
I hope I win!

I have a new cousin! And one on the way.
I wish I could meet them soober than October.
Hurry up October!
I should mention that we're popping over in October.
Pints? Anyone?

Lastly,
I received an amazing gift at the weekend.
A tea gift box!
I love it!
But I am struggling to decide which tea to try.
So I'm just downing stupid amounts of tea.
Thanks Lorraine and John!
It is mega!

  1. Congratulations on your new cousin! So glad you get to visit home in October. And so glad you're loving Edinburgh. We really need to get up for a visit soon.
    What a lovely gift from John and Lorraine, how thoughtful.
    Just to let you know, the nursery are having a bake sale next week, so I intend to make good use of that cupcake book you got me!

  2. Thank you! His name is Adam and from what I have seen he is a beauty!
    We would love to have you for a visit. It has been so long since we've seen you all! I hope Samuel enjoys his first day at big school!
    I love my tea box, alas it us like giving a child an endless supply of chocolate! I just can't get enough of the stuff (very Irish of me ;) )
    Enjoy your baking session... I still haven't posted your surprise... very bad of me... soon! X

      We should remedy this soon :)

  4. Glad to hear your enjoying Edinburgh. I too live in a boys house and Euro fever has taken over. Were 4 hours ahead of home so matches at 12 midnight are all fun and gamesxx

Turning 28.

Well. It happened. I turned 28. You know, ignoring a manic depression which lasted all of 20 minutes, I'm pretty ok with it. Rather than shy away from the fact that 30 is just around the corner, I've decided to confront it. Head on. "How?" I hear you ask. Well I have decided to celebrate the final years of being a twenty-something by embarking on a '30 things to do before I'm 30' challenge. I've been working on it for weeks. My friends here in Edinburgh have been really encouraging and I think together we have compiled a pretty mega list. Here we go (in no particular order) 1)Read the BBC top 100 books 2)Bungee jump (I should mention here I'm afraid of heights) 3)Go zorbing 4)Learn a new language 5)Visit the Sistine Chapel 6)Make a quilt (I've always wanted to. I blame Winona Ryder) 7)Visit Tiffani in Utah 8)Parachute Jump with Agata 9)Raise money for charity 10)Do the Great Scottish Run (ugh. The idea pains me.) 11)Sell something

January

I found out yesterday that I was one of the winners of the photography competition that I entered as one of my 30 before 30. My photograph will now be used in a calender as the January image. How exciting! What do you think?
